If you don’t have a mantel, you can do this with a coffee table, bar, counter, or whatever you have. Just pick up small pumpkins and gourds to create this beautiful Thanksgiving display. Add burlap, a few small corn husks, whatever you can find to make it look really harvest worthy. A few strategically placed turkeys (not the real ones, mind you) will really help you to make it holiday worthy.
The trick to affordable Thanksgiving decorations is to use your natural surroundings. Do you have pine trees and maple trees in your backyard? Then use them in your decorations! If you can find cheap pumpkins, gourds, apples or cranberries, then buy them to use for your Thanksgiving decor and work with what you have in your home already (vases, candleholders, jars, etc.).
Let the kids help you to create these adorable little pinecone turkeys. These are great for adding to any existing décor or for creating a centerpiece for the dinner table. Their little wobbly eyes are too cute, and they are really simple to create. Kids are absolutely going to love this project, and you’ll love the cheap and easy décor you get with these little gobblers.
